Leopold Singer is any woman’s perfect match – handsome, brilliant, and rich. Lady Delia wants him for his fortune, but his heart is torn between Susan Gray and Marta Schonreden.
When Leopold and Marta visit London on their way to Massachusetts, Delia is consumed by jealousy and she plots to ruin Marta. Susan has the real power to destroy Leopold’s marriage, but to use it would be to lose everything she holds dear. Who could guess that one day Susan’s secret would be the key to everyone’s happiness?
This multi-generational family saga spans the late Georgian through Regency periods, 1776 to 1832, from Austria to Massachusetts and London to Jamaica.
From the Author
This is the book of my romantic imagination. It’s a family saga – a soap opera full of all the things you’re not supposed to write about – secret babies, religion, amnesia. It covers two generations (1776 to 1832) and has way too many characters. Think Middlemarch meets Hawaii.
Leopold Singer of the title is modeled on Orpheus of Greek mythology. The women in Leopold’s life are like those who loved Orpheus. He chooses one, but the others love him no less.
Unlike my usual books, LOLS is reality based. No magical or paranormal creatures, though of course with a setting in 19th century England (and Austria and the Caribbean and Massachusetts) there is talk of fairies and loa and mermaids. LOLS is more “women’s fiction” than romance in that the happily ever after doesn’t always take the form of a man and woman ending up together forever, but it’s definitely chock-a-block with love stories.
